This ad is for a twin bed in a shared room that might have up to 2 other guests sharing the room. Require privacy? Let me know, I have other options for those willing to spend a little more.

There is bus access two blocks away, and then a short ten minute bus ride drops you on the Red Line at Howard. It's 45-75 minutes train to the heart of downtown from there for a mere cost of $2.25.

Breakfast is included in your stay. We keep the pantry stocked with eggs, bacon, milk, orange juice, jam, bread, fruit, pancake mix, coffee and tea. Any of these items can be used to make yourself breakfast in the morning. Please be sure to wash your dishes when you have finished eating!

I have a plethora of knowledge about the area and businesses. I do mystery shopping so have visited many places, know insider tricks of navigating the system, and can help you save money. I've also been known to take my guests out for shops sometimes. Usually involves booze and food.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Guests have access to their sleeping space. Until 10 PM, guests are free to use the common area living room. The kitchens and bathrooms on both floors are available for guests on either floor to use.

I am typically around most of the time. If not, I am generally still available by text. I’ve often gone out downtown with guests and routinely bring guests on mystery shops with me. They cover tip, I cover a round of drinks and a snack.

I am very friendly, and more than happy to spend time with guests when I have time available. I try to be mindful of guests who would prefer to be let alone.

Our neighborhood is quiet on the far north side of Chicago. The neighborhood is diverse. It's one of the lowest crime areas of Chicago. There are many great restaurants in the area, from Senegalese to Thai to Pizza. I will happily make recommendations if asked.

1.1 miles to nearest train station. 45-75 min to downtown.
My house to O’Hare in 60 minutes via bus/train and a single transfer.
35$ from my house to O’Hare by flat rate cab.
6$ from the nearest train stop to my house by cab
$2.25 from ANY eL stop in Chicago to the Red Line train stop by my house

This is an AirBNB house. There can be quite a few guests on any given night. If you are not comfortable with communal living, this is not the place for you.

In order to provide the best service possible, please note that if you set a check in time, we reserve the right to charge you $3.75 for every 15 minutes you are late. We both have other jobs and if we are not here we are paying someone 15 bucks per hour to wait for you. This includes after hour check ins. (12am to 10am)

We have no choice but to include this surcharge as every week we have people who ask us to meet them at one time and are late from 1 to 8 hours without so much as a phone call until they are already late. Please help us by sticking to your schedule.

Quiet time is after 10pm unless there are no guests trying to sleep/they don't care. If you can't control your yelling at a video game or your liquor, then don't do them.

Dishes are to be washed directly after eating/cooking-not an hour later, not the next morning. Dishes are placed into the dish rack. If there is no room in the dish rack, please put enough dishes away to fit yours, and then put yours in the dish rack. If my cleaning lady or I end up doing a walk through and washing your dishes or stove I will be asking for $5 for the service. I've only ever had 2 people ever get stuck with this, and they repeatedly left dishes in the sink all the time.

Cigarette smoking is to be conducted in the outside of the house. You can use the back door and stand in the walk way. If it is warmer, there will likely be chairs and an ashtray available in the back yard. Please collect your butts.

If your clothes require laundering, we can wash them for you for $3 a load. We will provide you with a bag for the laundry, which should be placed outside our bedroom door prior to 11 am. The bag of clean laundry will be placed back on your bed in the early evening.

We no longer allow guests to wash their own laundry, as there have been many issues with their use.

No Shoes Inside.

Please close doors behind you, even if you are only going through for a moment, for the sake of the cats, and our heating bill. My prices are low and we need things like this done to keep them low. Thanks for your part =)

The place is nice! Clean, quiet and other guests are friendly and respectful. I did not meet Joe but I met Rob who was waiting for me when I got there. He's very friendly. The breakfast is good and you can have some snacks. I really recomend this place.

Joe and Alex are amazing hosts. The place was exactly as described. At their rates, which include breakfast, fast internet, and all the essentials you could possibly need, there really isn't anything to complain about. They even threw a Christmas Eve dinner and gave every guest christmas stockings. I would definitely stay at Joe and Alex's the next time I'm in Chicago.

Best deal I've ever received in an airbnb. Joe is so awesome and accommodating and his cats like to cuddle which is definitely a perk.

Joe's place was great. It was exactly what I was looking for. Joe was friendly, communicated well and has things running smoothly. The location is good. Parking can be an issue during prime hours, but I was honestly there during a blizzard, and I think the entire neighborhood was at home (and parked).

Everybody was very friendly and I enjoyed staying with Joe. If I ever come back around to Chicago, I would be very happy to stay here again!

Joe and Alex are one of the most wonderful hosts I have ever had since I started using Airbnb. It's a 2-floor apartment with private rooms, co-ed rooms and living room beds and sofa beds. Everything is simple and clean and easy, and it's simply a perfect place for staying as a traveller. At this price, with free breakfast, and top-notch hospitality, it is almost unbeatably a 5-star host. They even held a wonderful barbecue for a guest who had been living there for a couple weeks and was leaving soon. The barbecue was yummy with delicious food that they put heart in it.
